Ourmedia's launch with Marc Canter and J.D. Lasica
IT Conversations host Doug Kaye interviews Marc Canter and JD Lasica who just launched Ourmedia.org on March 21, 2005. As JD wrote on his blog:
"Exactly nine months ago, Marc Canter and I met up at Supernova. I mentioned to him the idea I'd been kicking around with Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive to create a grassroots media organization, site, and registry called Open Media.
"Turned out that Open Media was, ironically, a trademarked name. But Marc jumped at the chance to dive in as co-founder of this new entity -- he's been a multimedia pioneer for 15 years, and this is the culimination of what he's been striving toward all these years.
"Today, Ourmedia.org officially launched."
